Hi - first time poster here.
I'm relatively new to SVG and I'm having a little trouble. :)
I'm multi-selecting and copying paths from the world map I've downloaded
from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:BlankMap-World.svg . Each path
seems to be separate, hence the multi-select. Then I paste the selected
paths (say for Spain) and try to combine them. They appear to be
combined, but I'm unable to get a proper interior fill on the resulting
object. That is it seems the fill is still acting on individual paths.
I've tried joining selected segments, grouping, everything I can think
of, but to no avail.
If you look at the small attached example, you'll see what I mean! I'm
sure from that you'll see what I'm trying to do. Maybe it's something
simple, but I'm baffled.
Any help would be gratefully received.
I am fairly new to Inkskape and experiencing some difficulties with
the way it handles units and resolution.
I use IS to create graphics for web sites, so I have "Default export
resolution" in Inkskape Preferences set to 72px.
At first I always set my document units to pixels, but then I noticed
that the exported bitmaps turned out to be smaller — pixel-wise that is.
So I took to using points as document units after discovering that
this resulted in the expected export sizes.
Problem is, when I import a bitmap it turns out to be smaller in
What is one to do?
Is there a way to set the document resolution?
Thanks in advance!

Ludi, this is wonderful stuff. You should put some
tutorials together for some of us inkscape naive
This is a GNOME application to find matching color schemes. I thought
it might of interest to Inkscape folks. If nothing else, it is fun to
play with :)

Subject: Agave release 0.4.0 now available (formerly GNOME Colorscheme)
Date: Tue, 18 Jul 2006 07:21:17 -0500
A new Agave release 0.4.0 is now available. Agave is the application
formerly known as GNOME Colorscheme.
What is it?
Agave is a very simple application for the GNOME desktop that
allows you to generate a variety of colorschemes from a single starting color.
It is aimed primarily toward web designers for creating pleasing color
combinations for websites.
More information can be found at http://home.gna.org/colorscheme/
Where to get it?
This release is available as a source package in tar.gz or tar.bz2 format
and can be downloaded from:
which can be verified with:
which can be verified with:
* Renamed application to Agave

* Make the rgb(...) and hsv(...) color descriptions lowercase
* Bump gtkmm requirement to 2.8.0 (bug # 5665)
* Display triads scheme at startup (fixed #5699)

* Added a configure switch to enable more compiler warnings
* Add a debug mode switch to configure.in (no optimizations)
I am trying to put text into a circle with the "put on path" command
Problem I am having, is the orientation of the text.
I have two areas of text, one text line I want to put on the top of the
circle but inside of the circle, with the text orientated upwards.
The second line is to go on the lower portion of the circle (again
inside), again with text orientated upwards.
I created both lines separately.
When I put the first line on, it aligns to the outside of the circle, is
there any way of selection so that it will align to the inside of the
circle, which just saves the step of resizing the text to fit the inner
portion of the circle.
My real problem is with the 2nd line. It also will align itself to the
outside of the circle. When I rotate the text to the bottom of the
circle, it ends up upside down (or facing downwards) rather then upwards
which I require. I tried inverting the text horizontally before using
put on path command, but it looks like the that formatting is eliminated
when the line is fitted to the circle as the result is the same.
Any assistance you can provide this novice with Inkscape would be
I'm using Inkscape on Linux, specially Tomahawk
Desktop ( http://www.tomahawkcomputers.com/ ).
How do I print my artworks on an inkjet printer? I use
Epson Stylus Photo R800. Is printing possible in first
place? How do inkscape users print artworks?
The gimp-print ( http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/ )
ver. 5.0 is coming soon. Can the gimp-print now known
as Gutenprint be used to print Inkscape artworks?
I'm really interested printing artworks on Epson
Stylus Pro series printers.

I have some draws that I would like to 'give away".
You can use them as template or just draw samples (GPL
2.0 only). The main idea is learning, of course.
Sure I have others but I'm not allowed to publish them (legal issues),
Would you be interested in it (them)?
